Congrats to the US Men's National Soccer Team

Discussion for professional sporting events/teams and players.

This would be a great place to discuss the Super Bowl, the NBA Playoffs or whatever else.

Congrats to the US Men's National Soccer Team

Post by SpiffCoug » Thu Mar 01, 2012 8:05 am

For their 1-0 WIN over Italy!!!

It was their first win over the Italians. The Americans showed well in both defense and in the attack. Easily the best game by the US in the Klinnsman era.

Great win!

For all the crap Klinsmann got after their first few games, they've been playing well lately.

They have been getting better. And a win like that can be an "aha!" moment.

I heard the guy who scored was only the 5th American to ever score a goal against Italy in all history.
